Broadcom's 802.11g Wireless Adapter & Acer Travelmate Notebook Com

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?QW5keUc=?=, Mar 16, 2007.

  1. I recently purchased an Acer Travelmate 2480 notebook computer which came
    with a Broadcom 802.11g wireless card built in.

    I am running a wireless home network using a D-link DI-524 router. I have
    two desktop pc's, with wireless connectivity, achieving download speeds near
    the 3Mb advertised rate of my isp ( Verizon DSL). One has D-Link adapter
    card and the other Linksys card. When I test the download speed on my Acer
    notebook via the Broadcom card I'm only getting in the neighborhood of
    400-600kbs. Believe it or not, my upload speed is actually higher, closer to
    700kbs. I achieve the correct speeds when I hard-wire the unit directly to my
    router.

    I contacted support for Acer and they had no clue and suggested I post such
    this on a forum for outside assistance.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    AndyG
